The Price of Sex

This multimedia project showcases the work of photojournalist Mimi Chakarova. After the collapse of communism in 1989, millions of former Soviet bloc residents migrated abroad, breathing life into one of the oldest criminal enterprises—the trafficking of humans into sexual slavery. Since then, thousands of Eastern European women have been sold into prostitution. Mimi has been documenting this phenomenon for the past seven years. I worked closely with her to create a multimedia presentation using her photography and video interviews she collected of sex trafficking survivors. I edited all of the videos, produced the multimedia map, and managed production of the website—from conception and design through content development, construction, and launch.
